A Transmission Owner’s Perspective on Stability in a Low Carbon System
The transition to a zero carbon electricity system will see the more converter-connected sources like wind, solar, batteries and HVDC and less synchronous generation. The traditional approaches to modelling and assessing system stability have to change. In fact, the very definitions of “stability” and “system strength” need to adapt. The pace of change is rapid and there are significant challenges to be tackled to ensure the industry continues to manage risks effectively. This talk will highlight some of the most significant challenges in system behaviour and the potential solutions. This will be presented in the context of a GB industry structure and incentives regime that divides responsibility and emphasises the role of flexibility services and markets in solving complex technical problems.

Systems Analysis Manager - Scottish Power Energy Networks
Colin Foote is the Systems Analysis Manager at SP Energy Networks, leading a team of power systems engineers and working in collaboration with others across the industry on modelling, data exchange, simulation and analysis on a wide range of technical issues across transmission and distribution. Before joining SPEN he was Head of Power Systems at Smarter Grid Solutions where he helped deliver some of the earliest deployments of Active Network Management and worked with various network operators on a range of innovation projects. Before SGS he was at Mott MacDonald, and before that he was a research fellow at the University of Strathclyde where his PhD research was on the new challenges in electricity distribution network planning.

Machine learning is an increasingly important aspect of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within the ethics of algorithms, specifically ethics that concern the ‘artificial moral’ behavior of machines and computers. This seminar will demonstrate and list five existing intelligent AI solutions that are employed today.View Event
